A new series of evening bluegrass music classes for beginners will be starting at the Log Cabin Cooking & Music Center in Asheville, N.C., Tuesday, Jan. 14. These first-timer classes are open to anyone and are designed for novices wanting to learn bluegrass banjo, fiddle or mandolin.
Classes will be held in a vintage log cabin at 111 Bell Road in the Haw Creek section of east Asheville, off Tunnel Road. Teaching the classes will be Wayne Erbsen, known for his ability to teach anyone to play a musical instrument.
Wayne also teaches music at Warren Wilson College, is the author of more than 30 selfhelp music instruction books, and is host of "Country Roots," a popular bluegrass and old-time music radio program on Asheville’s public radio station, WCQS.
